__________________________

At 05.00 on Wednesday, his doctors placed Fr Zakhar in the ICU. Recently, he had a serious operation, and he suffered a heart attack today. The elder is ready for anything, but we aren’t prepared to lose this great man of prayer, a very gentle, humble, gracious man full of ascetic piety. We’d be desolate without his presence. Lord, if possible, leave him to us.

LNR Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations and Disaster Relief Vitaly Dubrovsky announced that a Podolsk factory shipped special fire-technical equipment to the LNR MChS needed to test special rescue equipment:

We had a sticky situation… about 25 percent of our oxygen tanks were unusable. We contacted the Synkovsky PTS enterprise, which makes special fire-technical equipment, and received a favourable response. They shipped us Tsiklon -450 equipment to test pressure vessels, at no cost to us and to or specifications. We lost our own equipment for testing oxygen-breathing apparatus during the war. With the Tsiklon -450, we have the capability to test the integrity of pressure cylinders (from 1 to 150 litres) used in mountain rescue, fire rescue, diving rescue, and emergency services. The cylinder has to be in good order, that is, the person who puts it on has to be sure that it wouldn’t blow up. Therefore, we test it at-half reserve pressure; we hold it for a while in this state. In addition, this gear inspects for hairline cracks and does cylinder cleaning. At the same time that the plant produced this special equipment, four of our people received training in servicing this gear and received certification. Along with this new equipment, we received 100 emergency breathing apparatus masks, bunker suits, helmets, axes, and rescue belts as humanitarian aid.

PTS is the leading Russian manufacturer and supplier of compressed-air breathing apparatus, self-contained compressed oxygen breathing apparatus, special protective clothing, high-pressure compressors, metal composite and steel compressed-air cylinders, as well as other rescue and fire-technical equipment.
